Bleach Anime to Finally Enter New Arc on October 11

After all these weeks, the waiting will finally get paid out to all the Bleach fans. The anime series is going to catch up on the manga with the beginning of the new cannon arc called “Shinigami Daikou Shoushitsu”. This was announced by Shueisha’s Weekly Shounen Jump, one of the most popular weekly manga magazines around the globe.

According to Shounen Jump, the Bleach TV series will get back on track on October 11, 2011 when the new episode, first of the Shinigami Daikou Shoushitsu arc, will come out in Japan.

These are the new characters and cast members according to Shounen Jump’s announcement:

Hiroki Touchi as Kūgo Ginjō

Daisuke Ono as Tsukishima

Atsushi Ono as Giriko Kutsuzawa

Atsuko Yuya as Jackie Tristan

Megumi Toyoguchi as Riruka Dokugamine

Mitsuhiro Ichiki as Yukio

The anime has been giving a pre-made filler arc since the end of the Arrancar one with Sousuke Aizen’s accusation and imprisonment. Although the manga fans are not very happy with the Bleach Shinigami Daikou Shoushitsu arc, there is definitely no doubt that returning to the original cannon plot will be a good thing for the anime which was slowly starting to lose its position amongst the top 3 of current shounen anime series.
